Are you a little puzzled about what students and schools get in response to an application, and when they get it? If so, this is the session for you. Students can apply for federal aid using a variety of Department of Education applications, such as the paper FAFSA and FAFSA on the Web. Or, they can ask their financial aid administrator to submit application information for them using EDExpress or FAA Access to the CPS Online. Depending on the type of form used, and whether an e-mail address was provided, students will receive different kinds of application "output" from the Central Processing System (CPS). At this session you will learn who gets PIN mailers and who gets e-mails with links to the PIN on the Web. You will find out which applicants get paper SARs, SAR Acknowledgments, and e-mails with links to SAR data on the Web. Also, come hear about one of the most exciting changes for 2003-2004 - real-time corrections on the Web - and what this new feature means for both students and schools.

The attached presentation is in Portable Document Format (PDF), 31.8MB, 45 pages and also in MS97 PowerPoint (PPT), 4.13MB 45 pages.
